      Padmavati release row: Censor Baord sends movie back to filmmakers over technical issue | Oneindia

      The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has sent Bollywood movie Padmavati back to filmmakers due to technical reasons. The film would be reviewed again after the filmmakers sort out the issue raised by the censor board, reported news agency ANI.

      Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati has stirred a major controversy with the Rajput groups, especially the Karni Sena, protesting across the nation alleging that the movie has distorted historical facts.

      Meanwhile, the Supreme Court on Friday agreed to ''consider the plea'' filed by a lawyer against 'Padmavati', seeking deletion of objectionable scenes. 

      The protest over the Bollywood big-budget drama, which is fast spreading across the country, has been triggered by allegations that the makers of Padmavati have wrongly portrayed queen Padmini in the film and thus the movie hurt the sentiments of Hindus and Rajput community in particular.

      In fact, the Rajput Karni Sena has announced a Bharat Bandh (all-India shutdown) if the film gets released on December 1, as announced by the makers of Padmavati. The film is currently waiting for a clearance from the Censor Board.
